Anger Management Training, Counseling, and Support.
Anger is a completely normal healthy human emotion. The problem begins when anger gets out of control, turns destructive and affects not only our personal relationships, but, other areas of our lives as well.
Psycho-Activity Anger Management is the process of engaging novelty through learning and promoting the Growth Mindset. This brings transformation of the individual. With the goal of integrating fragmented anger states, this approach ultimately increases an individual’s:
Sense of Inner Personal Power or OK’ness
Utilizing tools to cultivate Cognitive Awareness while using the latest in Mindfulness Techniques and addressing a client’s daily Lifestyle, Psycho- Active Anger Management is Neuroplasticity-in-action. The more connections between neurons are formed, the more we grow and develop. As those connections get stronger, the less we must think about what we’re doing.
The brain is designed to develop and evolve through Psycho-activity. Humans have the capacity to develop and grow as adults – beyond childhood and adolescence – and Psycho-Activity is the tool to activate it in our clients.
What is program this about?
This is a new and revolutionary way to think about helping domestic violence offenders change their thinking and actions. This treatment approach to domestic violence focuses upon achieving ‘safety for all’ and also includes anger management skills and techniques for individuals’ future relationships.
The National Anger Management Association (NAMA) is the international professional association (represented in 21 countries) for the fields of anger management, crisis intervention and domestic violence (namass.org). Anger Management therapy is also available.
Membership levels (Member, Fellow, Diplomat) are open to any anger management, crisis intervention and domestic violence professional. Specialist certification for anger management (CAMS), crisis intervention (CCIS) and domestic violence (CDVS) is offered to individuals completing the NAMA authorized training programs.
This program includes an ‘Anger Log’ (and anger scale) and the program literally CHANGES the way a person thinks about their anger response. It can take a chaotic, out of control, unconscious series of reactions that happen in the primitive brain and give the experience structure, understanding “new possibilities” for outcomes to happen from the evolved brain.
It separates the chaos of anger out for participants and therefore makes them more conscious during the anger response; thus, empowering them to make a different, better choice.
The Anger Log envelopes the “multi-faceted approach to anger” included with the modules taught week to week.
Individual Workbooks & Personal Application Program
Also included are open-ended opportunities for individuals to describe their actual feelings and experiences when angry. We endorse personal engagement within our individual settings, using real life experiences and potential life experiences to teach and educate. Our goal is to promote a healthier happier life first and foremost, however, our main focus it to equip each individual with the tools necessary to cope and manage their anger, long after they have completed this course.
The best prediction of a person’s success in this program is the willingness to honestly examine and admit the consequences of their anger problem.
